on this -- this is under way for chuck hagel and whether he's the next defense secretary. if the vote exceeds 60 votes that means a possible vote would come as soon as tomorrow and only require a 51 vote majority. if it does not get the 60 votes, this thing it liking dicey. a vote for hagel is delayed for at least another week. they're in recession next week and this whole thing could fall apart. this is the first time this has happened with a pentagon appointee in this process. senator john mccain is coming up after the vote on the implications. hours away from another deadline for the healthcare law. why scott brown doesn't like what he sees. see him next. hi. hi. i'm here to pick up some cacti. it should be under stephens. the verizon share everything plan for small business. get a shareable pool of data... got enough joshua trees? ... on up to 25 devices. so you can spend less time... yea, the golden barrels... managing wireless costs and technology and more time driving your business potential. looks like we're going to need to order more agaves... ah! oh! ow! ... and more bandages. that's powerf
. >> neil: thank you very much. moving to the floor of the united states senate where chuck hagel might just be a few minutes away from being confirmed as the next defense secretary, but it's safe to say, if he does get approval it will be by the closest margin we have seen in a number of decades. maybe the holdup of john tower during the bush years think senior, would be the closest example. that was 1989. this is a quarter century later, but chuck just likely gets under the whisker here. >> what happened to scott rolley? >> what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? dad, i'd put that down. ah. 4g, huh? verizon 4g lte. 700 megahertz spectrum, end-to-end, pure lte build. moe most consistent speeds indoors or out. and, obviously, astonishing throughput. obviously... you know how fast our home wifi is? yeah. this is basically just as fast. oh. and verizon's got more fast lte coverage than all other networks combined. oh, why didn't you just say that? huh-- what is he doing? >> i look forward tower partnering, with that, what i want to do is clear out the
stuff up. mcfarland warns time not on chuck hagel's side. good to see you, explain. >> he has two weeks where he's going to twist in the wind and his opponents will find out every dumb thing he's ever said. every speech he's ever made. they'll find out how many overdo library books he had. they'll try to paint the picture of a unqualified man to be secretary of defense. >> i think when there's something like this and it drags on, whether it ultimately passes, and john mccain was here saying he thinks we would be approved. he wouldn't vote for him but he would be approved. the upshot being that what happens is most nominees withdraw. they say it's not worth it and to save further embarssment they go quietly into the night, would he? >> one of two things, either he'll withdraw -- maybe the white house says this is also a distraction from the president's mission. we think it's a good idea if you withdraw. if he does, there are two candidates behind him. number two at the defense department, ash carter and michelle flowknow. both very well respected. say he does get confirmed. he's a weak s
of your retirement today. ♪ ♪ >> neil: we're told that chuck hagel will live to fight another day. one says why bother? he said he would be at best a wounded defense secretary even if he does survive, so dump him. he says all sides and the nation would be the better for it. explain. >> i think you have a situation, neil, where you have a guy who is not going to be a strong secretary of defense. he is not prepared by experience or by education or, frankly, by intelligence for this particular job and would be coming in at a very, very difficult time with the sequester and all the other things going on. mr. hagel may be a very nice man but we have a lot of people whoa we be better. i don't think we're going to get anybody but hagel. he's going to be confirmed and figures to be what mr. obama wants, a guy who is not going to be independent, who is not going to have a deep knowledge of the defense community and not going to be a very effective guy over >> neil: some secretaries of defense, leeon panetta, no defense background, did a pretty good job, utilizing his congressional skills and ad
